Looking for YA Recs

If you've read any truly spectacular Young Adult sf/f, that was published in 2011, please tell me about it in comments.  I don't care if someone else has already mentioned the book - I want as many opinions as I can gather.

Thanks!

I thought you might, but I figured mentioning it anyway couldn't hurt.

Another YA that I read and loved is Mastiff (Tamora Pierce).

A novel that's borderline YA/MG that I very much enjoyed was Akata Witch (Nnedi Okorafor).

Goliath by Scott Westerfeld. It's the final book in his Leviathan trilogy.

Chime by Franny Billingsley is great.

Datlow & Windling's YA vampire anthology Teeth has quite a few stunning stories in it.

ETA: Oh, and I almost forgot Gwenda Bond's YA issue of Subterranean.

Oh, for anthologies Welcome to Bordertown is also (more than) worth a mention, though I have a vested interest in that one, too.

I loved Ysabeau Wilce's Flora Fyrdraaca.

Books I loved that came out this year include Karen Healey's The Shattering, Malinda Lo's Huntress, Sarah Beth Durst's Drink Slay Love, Mette Ivie Harrison's Tris and Izzie, and Holly Black's Red Glove; and will probably include (halfway through now, and wow) Laini Taylor's Smoke and Bone. And I can second Chime, too.

I also had one (Faerie Winter) come out this year, though I can't claim to judge it in any objective way.
